I can't figure out how to get caustics to show on hair, or even instances on hair. I must be doing something stupid, but I can't figure it out. This is possible, isn't it? I'm using 7.01.

I thought maybe I should clarify that I can't get hair (or hair instances) to receive caustics. I thought my post might sound like I wanted to get hair to cast caustics, which I don't.

I figured it out, and just as I thought, I was doing something stupid. Don't plug the architectural material (if that's what you're using) into the photon spot on the material you are using for hair instances, use phong or something. I still can't get caustics to show up on plain hair, but that's not what I needed, so all is good. If someone could still explain this to me though, that would be awesome.
